Director of Kirov Unitary Enterprise sentenced to 8.5 years for bribery
The Kirov District Court has sentenced ex-Director of Obsluzhivanie meditsinskogo transporta ('Medical transport maintenance') Regional Unitary Enterprise Vladimir Mamaev to 8.5 years in prison and a fine of 3 million rubles for allegedly accepting a bribe of 1.5 million rubles.
Mamaev will serve his sentence in a penal colony. The regional prosecutor's office reported that the official was caught red-handed when taking a bribe.
Investigation into the case was completed at the end of last year. In late November, a decree on liquidation of the Kirov Regional State Unitary Enterprise was signed. In a recent interview with the regional press, Head of the Department for Supervision over the Implementation of Legislation on Combating Corruption of the Kirov region prosecutor's office Pavel Matantsev noted that it is one of the three cases on bribery in the region for 2016.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
